My husband and I did the Lonsoraefi jeep and hiking tour, which was fantastic. Lonsoraefi is incredibly beautiful---a real hidden gem. Oskar is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and we feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to explore Lonsoraefi with him. We highly recommend this tour!

Walk in Vatnajökul glacier. Excellent service. Very experienced guide, to be trusted. Breathtaking landscape. Do not miss it!

Iceguide (Oskar) picked up our foursome at our hotel in Hofn and took us on a truly fun-filled tour in the Lonsoraefi Nature Reserve just west of Vatnajokull National Park. In his comfy, high 4-wheel drive jeep, he drove us across rivers and literally up and over a 700 metre high foothill, allowing us to stop whenever we asked, and at points he recommended, for pics of beautiful multicoloured land formations along the way. Oskar is knowledgeable, friendly, relaxed and provides just the right amount of commentary along the way. He can also run up and down scree like nobody's business!

This tour was one of the highlights of our full Ring Road tour of Iceland. I give it my highest recommendation.

My husband and I did the hike/ice walking tour and it was amazing. We had the best time! Oskar is so kind, informative, careful, respectful and funny. We learnt tons, saw so many beautiful sights and enjoyed our company. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a tour/tourguide.

Oskar is a local guide and was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. He picked us up from our campsite in Hofn and drove us to a farm a short-hike away from the base of the glacier. He provided crampons and poles and made sure we were aware of the dangers of being on a glacier before we set off. We spent about an hour and a half up on the glacier surface, taking in the spectacular views while Oskar pointed out different features and points of interest. There were only two of us on the tour the day we went, group sizes are kept small to ensure safety and it was so helpful to have all of our questions answered and after the hike Oskar drove us back to our campsite.

I really couldn't recommend this trip enough, fantastic value for money and definitely a highlight of our trip.
